Being in the psychological field myself, I'm not sure I'd say exactly what diagnosis but it is very clear he has some type of psychological impairment. It was very interesting listening to season two. The mental status of pretty much everyone involved is questionable.
Its clear hes done too many drugs in his lifetime!
I cringed the whole time during his interviews!! way too many drugs ! He makes no sense and is so scattered. He can barely finish a complete thought and is extremely paranoid
I am very confused by a lot of Catfish's narrative in the phone call. He expressed 0 sympathy toward Kristal and her friends/family. Iirc, he even insulted her during the phone call. His voice is shaky throughout the call, he is rambling, and exclusively is concerned with his own innocence. That's his narrative.
Honestly I have bad adhd, bad anxiety, and I like to talk. I think if I was paranoid because I was involved in drugs and covering up criminal activity, then I would probably ramble forever and ever just like Catfish. I think it's a defense strategy.
Haven't been around in a while, but I'll chime in....Catty Catfish is pretty friggin wild to listen to, however, I don't think he's stupid. Sure, he's a methhead, but I think he talks in circles like that intentionally. People figure "it's just the drugs", and that is partially true, but he has enough intelligence in that vast black hole of a brain to have gotten away with murder. So......I wonder where he's been. CaptainOfTheSea was the last username he had when we interacted on here. On a side note, I caught a literal catfish the other night. Named him CJ. Sadly, he swallowed the whole damn hook and found his way to a watery grave to be eaten by a turtle. Ugly looking suckers, but he put up a good fight.
